…Transition from Cycle Day 1 to Cycle Day 2
This leads us into Cycle Day 2 (CD2): Normal for a Cycle Day 2 is for some ‘back n fill’ consolidation activity to balance previous volatile sessions. Price is currently trading near SPY (450) strike, so expectation is for two-way traffic with a bullish lean. As such, estimated scenarios to consider for today’s trading.
Bull Scenario: Price sustains a bid above 4490, initially targets 4515 – 4520 zone.
Bear Scenario: Price sustains an offer below 4490, initially targets 4480 – 4475 zone.
PVA High Edge = 4486 PVA Low Edge = 4450 Prior POC = 4472
